This is an outdoor nature program where families can enjoy the park together. We provide animal experts that
bring a variety of live animals like frogs, snakes, birds, and of course, turtles. We also have musicians come
and sing family, friendly music to eager crowds. A star feature is nature free play which is proven to help
children developmentally as they build forts out of sticks, touch pine cones or smell cinnamon bark.
